This hotel is very well located in the city center of Firenze close to the train station/bus stop to Airport. Very small room as announced. The bathroom was a complete disaster (very small, dirty, only a curtain to close the shower less than 10 cm away from the toilets). Sound insulation towards the outside was good but not to the...

Dear Jean, Allow me to thank you for sharing your experience with Tripadvisor. Thank you for remarking our central position, and i'd like to clarify some points: First at all we have a high qualified staff, ready to listen and to help all the guests' needs. The communication is very important to help each other, specially if the personal idea...

The rooms of this hotel are very dated and they don't come with many frills - there is no kettle, or tea making facilities. There is a mini-bar but they charge for the water in it (unlike some other hotels). However you probably just want somewhere to rest your head at night, and this place is well located and will...

We stayed at Hotel Unicorno for 4 nights in September 2016 and it was a very enjoyable stay. The location of the hotel is fantastic - close to the main train station and many of the most popular tourist attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They also arranged an early breakfast on our last day due to us...

We stayed at the Uncorno for 2 nights and had a great stay. The breakfast was good both days and the rooms clean. The owners went out of their way to help us find locations and make recommendations - very friendly and fun. The room we had was pretty basic but the location worked great for our outings.

Hotel Unicorno is nicely situated just a short walk from the railway station and the old town centre. The staff went out of their way to assist us and to mind our luggage on our final day there after we checked out. They gave us very good recommendations for local restaurants and places to see and visit. We speak no...

We had a nice stay at this hotel! I just want to start off by saying the professional photos look nothing like the actual room. Our room was very outdated, the mattress is very hard, and we were grossed out by the blanket, throw pillows, and curtains. However, it was a very big room, decent sized bathroom, and the air...

We stayed for three nights in September 2016. The weather was very hot ~ 30' in the day and not much less at night. Fortunately, the hotel had air-conditioning. Unfortunately, in our room it was a very noisy, old-fashioned unit on the wall above the door, it was good for keeping the room comfortable during the day whilst we were...

I stayed for one night after coming into Florence on a late flight. The reception staff were courteous and efficient. The room itself was spacious but unfortunately a little dirty and the bathroom had poor plumbing and smelt of sewage. There was also poor noise insulation so I was disturbed quite often during the night. I think this place is...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while being in Florence. Easy to find as it's very close to the Florence's railway station (7 mins by walking with heavy baggage :) ).

Perfect location. We travelled into Florence by train so it was only 5 min walk away. Right on the Santa Maria Novella area which has a few nice restaurants & bars. The hotel was walking distance from the main attractions (Duomo & Uffizi). The hotel staff were very helpful & was easy to check in & out.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
